The Beyond [35mm]
directed by Lucio Fulci starring Catriona MacColl, David Warbeck and Cinzia Monreale (1981)
A remote and cursed hotel, built over one of the seven gateways to Hell, becomes a yawning malevolent abyss that begins devouring both the bodies and the souls of all who enter in a graphic frenzy of gory crucifixions, chunkblowing chain-whippings, eyeball impalements, sulphuric acid meltdowns, flesh-eating tarantulas, throat-shredding demon dogs and ravenous bloodthirsty zombies. The Beyond is a towering achievement in hair-raising, mind-bending cinematic terror!

Life of Brian [35mm]
directed by Terry Jones (1979)
Just in time for Easter, Monty Python delivers the group’s sharpest and smartest satire of both religion and Hollywood’s epic films. Set in 33 A.D. Judea as the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change, with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe them. Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in a stable, is caught up in the new religion though his mother says he’s not the messiah.

Sat 11 Apr
directed by Steven Soderbergh starring Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey (2012)
Based on the real life experiences of charming beefcake Channing Tatum, this is a coming-of-age tale about a hot athletic guy who decides to do what he knows how to do best – get naked! The hard working hunks of Xquisite roll, grind and flip for dollars to entertain the never-ending caravan of minibuses unloading bachelorette parties upon the shores of Florida. In the immortal words of Master of Ceremonies Matthew McConaughey, “The law says you can’t touch, but I see a whole lotta lawbreakers here tonight!” Rated R for pervasive sexual content, brief graphic nudity, language and some drug use. And lots and lots of male stripping.

Sat 18 Apr
directed by Juan Piquer Simon (1982)
The sickest and most violent of all the early ’80s slasher movies! A psychopathic killer stalks a Boston campus, brutally slaughtering nubile young co-eds, collecting body parts from each victim to create the likeness of his mother who he savagely murdered with an axe when he was ten years old! PIECES is a wild, unrated gorefest, with enough splatter and sleaze to shock even the most jaded horror fan.

The Room [35mm]
directed by Tommy Wiseau starring Tommy Wiseau, Juliette Danielle and Greg Sestero (2003)
This “electrifying American black comedy about love, passion, betrayal and lies” stars (and was directed, written and produced by) the mysterious Tommy Wiseau, and has been a cult favorite in LA since 2003!. “Enter The Room and leave forever changed!”
“Must be seen to be disbelieved.” —The Chicagoist

The Rocky Horror Picture Show [35mm]
directed by Jim Sharman starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick (1975)
This notorious horror parody — a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things — tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry).
The film, co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien, bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.
Fri 8 May
Sat 9 May
directed by Noel Marshall starring Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith, Noel Marshall (1981)
No animals were harmed in the making of this movie, but 70 members of the cast and crew were! An unprecedented––and wholly unpredictable––action-adventure, Roar follows wildlife preservationist Hank (The Exorcist producer Noel Marshall in his sole and career-derailing turn as an actor and director), who lives harmoniously alongside a menagerie of untamed animals, including cheetahs, elephants, lions and tigers on a preservation in the African plains. When his wife and children arrive (real-life wife Tippi Hedren and step-daughter Melanie Griffith) for a visit, a long-brewing battle for dominance between two lions erupts and threatens their very lives.
